Top Steps to Follow for Trusted Residential Security
November 2, 2015

The winter holiday’s are soon upon us which means families will gather and laughter and fun will horde your home. Although a time of jolly festivities, the winter holidays are inviting for burglars to invade your home while you’re away visiting friends and family. Security is one of the major concerns of any homeowner. Burglars have increasingly become smarter while constantly hunting for easy targets, which is why it’s always best to stay one step ahead by taking measures to protect your home and family.

Here are 5 steps you can take to help increase your household security.

Install Automated Security Gates:

  • Gates are your first line of defense to prevent an invasion
  • Choose pedestrian gates and fencing without mid rails to prevent climbing
  • Install locking mechanisms that can only be opened by key holders to decrease the risk of home invasion

Illuminate Your Property:

  • Darkness provides a great cover for burglars, make your house less of a target by making sure it is well illuminated outside
  • Install yard lights or motion detector lights near points of entry as well as along pathways and any hiding spots that might offer burglars cover

Keep Your House Locked:

  • Keep all doors locked whether you’re at home or not
  • Double dead bolt type locks on doors are helpful but you can also prevent access with the use of magnetic swipe cards or wireless keypads
  • Lock your windows

Install a Security System:

  • Display your alarm system in plain sight to discourage burglars from breaking in

When it comes to the safety and security of your home, it is important to not be content and instead be vigilant in taking extra precaution.
